of chuck hagel to be secretary of defense. while we were home last week, i had the opportunity to watch the senate confirmation hearing, and i was dismayed by the way many of the republicans on that hearing chastised mr. hagel. mr. hagel is a man of integrity. i -- the question from one of the senators about, do you think the surge worked, and senator hagel was such he didn't want to give him a direct answer. i would have said no, it didn't work. 1,200 americans killed. i don't know how many iraqis. look at the country today. it is totally falling apart. that was a question towards senator hagel. . the iraq war was very unnecessary. it was manufactured by the previous administration, and there was a marine general, greg newbold, who actually wrote an article in "time" after the war started and one of the points he made that i'm going to share with you, mr. speaker, is some of the missteps included the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. in the history of washington, if ever our government needed integrity, it's

, is it a better idea to just have these automatic spending cuts where when you look at defense we don't know what missions are being compromises. we don't know, you know, where the cuts are going to hit in terms of our defense as a country. i mean, is that really the way to do it? >> no, i don't like the automatic approach, but months ago we have proposed a way to reorder those so we don't have automatic spending cuts, that in the first year we have a more balanced approach in terms of defense versus other spending. the president basically has ignored that. he has not come forward with an alternative on that, so at this point it's really up to the administration to do that. we have done that. those views are out there, and they have been ignored, so i think at this point we need the president's budget. we'll move forward on ours which will take into account a revenue level at a lower amount. >> are you -- are you going to get it? mean what, happens if you get rolled over again? >> look, i think we have to make a stand here that revenue is not going to solve our problem. the president wants more m
that it is not the department of defense's job to be 911. and so the question that struck me is, so when this happens and it happens so fast and so quick that when you respond in an hour, it may already be over by that time. are we relying on the home country to be 911? and if so, as you go through what they're providing to us, you mentioned some are not up to the quality of others at this time, but how are you making that decision that we have people in harm's way and we are relying on a host nation that might not be up to taking care of our people? and if so, as you go through what they're providing to us, you mentioned some are not up to the quality of others at this time, but how are you making that decision that we have >> you know, obviously, it's very important that you know the ambassador determined what is the situation and whether or not there's a need for action. i mean the 911 is basically the host country that has to respond quickly and provide mediate security around. if that's not there, you have to have security within the embassy itself. you have to have intelligence that gives you a
